Chris Christie Says His 'Controlled Anger' is a Sign of Passion


Presidential candidate Gov. Chris Christie told NBC's Matt Lauer his temper on the campaign trail shows a "controlled anger" that demonstrates his passion about important issues. "It is an absolute controlled anger. A controlled anger," he told Lauer in an exclusive interview on the day of his presidential announcement. "I'm angry about the fact that taxpayers were being ripped off in New Jersey. I'm angry about the fact that our urban kids can't get a good education. I'm angry about those things, you're darn right I am. And I think America wants someone who's willing to fight for that." Christie has gotten many questions about his temperament and the New Jersey Republican said his anger remains controlled "almost all the time" and that he's lost his temper "very few times" during his governorship.
